Momentous Monday

Tiffany over at A Moment Cherished is now hosting Momentous Monday, a chance for all of us to cherish everyday moments. Please check out her beautiful blog for more precious moments.

The past two weeks have been really hard. We have had a very difficult time with the Teen and some big decisions are being made. Part of the upcoming changes may include me needing to let him go, and it breaks my heart (more on this here). It's been two weeks of worry, stress, and heartbreak.

The other night I was doing one of my most favorite things - sitting in our home library reading a great book. It was The Sacrifice by Beverly Lewis. I was listening to my son laughing down in his room, trying so hard to cherish the sound when I came to this line in the book (the one in italics):

"Things happen for a reason...therefore the sovereignty of God can be wholly trusted. You can throw your life on His mercy."

Peace filled my heart. While I knew this truth, I needed to hear it again - right then. I may not understand what's going on right now, but God does. I don't know what's best for the Teen, but God does.

While the situation is still sad, I feel so much better about it. God is in control. My job is to pray and to trust and obey.


  1. Amen. God is in control. It's still hard, and sad, and scary, yet as believers we can rest assured that despite all of those conflicting and difficult emotions that our Father cares for us and guides us.

    I'll keep your family in my prayers.

    Thanks for the beautiful quote.

  2. Oh yes...we all need to "let go and let God" can be so hard, but it is the best thing...and He will bless our obedience.

    I learned a little song when I was a kid and it said..."Why worry when you can pray?...why worry when you can pray?...don't be a doubting Thomas...just rest upon His promise...why worry, worry, worry, worry...when you can pray!"

    I still sing that song and I am now an old granny. (:>)

    Have a Momentous Monday!

  3. Amen. I can't count the times lately that I have "heard" what I needed to hear at the precise moment I needed to hear it. God knows what we need, even when we don't.

  4. God is so good to us. What a wonderful, gentle reminder, and a beautifully depicted moment cherished. Thank you for joining Momentous Monday!

  5. God will never give you more than you can shoulder. My mom tells me that ALL. THE. TIME. But it makes sense. Sending prayers for you to make the right decision (whichever it is).


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
